Mercer Island High School to present ‘Urinetown’ as fall musical

The MIHS drama department will present “Urinetown” beginning Nov. 10 in the Performing Arts Center.

Mercer Island High School's production of 'Urinetown' opens Nov. 10.

The Mercer Island High School drama department will present its fall musical “Urinetown” beginning Nov. 10 in the Performing Arts Center.

There’s a water shortage in town, and Urine Good Company, a big money corporation, owns all the restrooms. Citizens are forced to pay to use the restroom, and so the poor cannot afford to pee. A revolution ensues.

“Urinetown” is a satirical musical that pokes fun at all other musicals and makes a social commentary on big money and our treatment of the poor.

Performances run at 7 p.m. Nov. 10, 12, 17, 18 and 19 and at 1:30 p.m. Nov. 12. Tickets are $10 in advance and $15 at the door. Seniors 65 and older and children under 7 are $5. Advance tickets can be purchased through the cast or online.

To purchase tickets online, visit https://wa-mercerisland.intouchreceipting.com/signin.aspx.

Print your receipt and bring it to the performance to use as your admission ticket. If you do not have a Skyward Family Access account, you may also create a guest account on the online payment portal page.
